COVID Safety Statement

FIRST is committed to hosting safe and enjoyable events and will comply with all safety protocols consistent with the host city’s government. Event organizers will continue to work closely with the event venue to make certain your health, safety, and comfort are first and foremost.

If there are any major changes to the schedule, a reschedule, or if we must cancel the event--those registered to participate will be contacted and information on this page will be immediately updated.
